Where to catch Alex in 2021

Alex Adsett Literary is based on the southern Gold Coast on the lands of the Yugumbeh People. We respectfully acknowledge the Yugambeh People, and all the traditional owners of the lands on which we travel to, and pay respect to their elders past and present.

Alex is often at author events around SE Queensland and Northern NSW, especially at Avid Reader Bookshop and Boardwalk Books in Kingscliff.  Except in accordance with the Submission Guidelines or the rules of any conferences she is attending, she is not taking appointments to meet in person. Alex hopes to be at the following events throughout the year (but this is always subject to change).
